buying a f-350 or not

Okay guys and girls, i have a 07 1ton ram and im looking to trade it in on 08 ford. I was just wondering how are these trucks, ive herd so many bad things and my cousin works at a ford dealer somewhere on vancouver island. He said they've been having nothing but problems with htem and the turbos and the engines. My cousin dosnt work there anymore though and he said he had a few trucks come back with blown engines as well is this true.?

The Jobs 1s had some problems but they fixed most of those. The Job 1s are not a bad truck by any means but if possible I would look for a Job 2 or 3

My 08' blew the motor and FMC denied my warranty, but---I'm still a Ford guy and given the 6.7 a few more months to continue to prove itself.

58,000+. All stock. I've said it before on here, I would've started to mod it out had I'd known it would really have been actually good for this motor. I also did not start to do anything because I literally had to start taking it to the dealer after a couple of weeks for the initial series of bad s..t going down with that truck. I really think I got a turd dropped right off the delivery truck. Every other PSD did I have owned has been golden.
